Student Transportation of America Partners with School Bus Safety Leader Promoting Child Safety On and Around the Bus
“Danger zones are where a child has the greatest risk of getting hurt or killed because those are the areas around the bus where drivers have limited visibility,” stated Shelly Hall, STA’s Vice President of Safety. “The Danger Zones videos can help prevent danger zone accidents that are unfortunately far too common. It would be prudent for students, parents and school officials to watch these videos and become better educated on how to behave on and around the school bus.”
In addition to the Danger Zones videos, which feature topics such as Instructions to Students, Safe Pick Up & Drop Off Procedures, Crossing the Street, and Why Children Enter Danger Zones, another series of children’s videos is also being offered by STA for the Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade audience. These videos offer invaluable safety tips to help students realize the importance of taking school bus safety seriously and view best practices for daily riders that are potentially life-saving lessons.
“Naturally, we place the utmost importance on keeping children safe on and around school buses,” added Hall. “This series of safety-themed videos for children from Pre-K through 12th grade is a great offering for children, and really most everyone, to learn about safety practices and how to optimize safety on and around the school bus.”
